The fridge was on propane, nothing else AC, and the breaker panel was only about 100 ft away, in case it tripped. We have a standard-sized rooftop Coleman AC. So I tried it! Yeah! We've got air! Didn't try the microwave, and felt good knowing the breaker panel was nearby. It turned out to be a fun park, and they brought Karaoke in, too! (yes, I did!) Hated to leave!
You can keep the Karaoke... I hated it when I was a bar tender and still don't like it today!
I have run roof top air on 20 amp branch, just have to be very, very careful that you don't hit a low voltage situation and burn something up. We used to run our Coleman popup on 20 amp all the time, just didn't run anything BUT the air. One of the features that I dearly love on my current Coleman is the low amp draw air.
Glad you had fun, we are heading out early Thursday morning for a long weekend at Camp Barnhardt up in the Uwharrie Mountains near Albemarle, NC. The camp is a BSA facility, we are riding heard on ~50 pageant girls.
I am the tech support for camping and camp fire cooking.
The rest of the time I am goofing of and working on my nap technique.
